Clara Rosa's story

42-year-old Clara Rosa is a role model not only to her family members but also to everyone who knows her, because of her strength and perseverance in pursuing her dreams.
Her family is extremely proud, because this woman teaches them new life lessons on a daily basis. Although her financial situation has been one of the family's biggest concerns, to her it hasn't stood in the way of her reaching for what she wants. She worked in various types of services for a long time, and that's how she saved enough money to become a microentrepreneur. She set up her cobbler's shop where she designs and makes shoes. She's currently finishing her studies with the goal of expanding her knowledge.
Her biggest dream is to be able to become financially stable with this new business. She also wishes to forget about her money problems and provide her customers with a variety of products, which is why she's requesting a loan in order to purchase a flat sewing machine and supplies. This will allow her to increase her sales and improve her living conditions.
